Trust a Terabyte of Your Email to “Hellacious Riders”

By Deane Barker on December 14, 2004

Hellacious Riders – Hriders.com 1 TB email: This can’t be legit.

Hriders.com gives unlimited free 1 Terabyte email accounts that include 500 Megabyte attachments.

We have been asked why we would do such a thing. The answer is simple to help people store large amounts of information in a safe and secure environment.

You gotta be careful in advertising this stuff, because Gmail advertised 1GB of storage, then The Screen Savers decided to test if that was true. Last I remember, the results weren’t pretty.

  2. Jim, can you explain WHY would would offer unlimited, free, 1TB accounts? If you can explain that logically, perhaps people would feel more comfortable with the idea.

    We have been asked why we would do such a thing. The answer is simple to help people store large amounts of information in a safe and secure environment.

    We live in a world where natural and un-natural events take place, that can destroy homes or offices, when that happens many people loose all of their family pictures, their furnishings, office equipment and more.

    We decided that Hriders.com should do something more than just provide a place to receive large quantities of emails. What we have done is provide our members with a place to store their family pictures or home videos as well as store pictures of their home or office furnishings, in case something might be lost to an unexpected event.

    Homes burn, earthquakes happen, floods and un-natural events take place all the time, and all to often we hear people say, well at least I survived but I lost everything, my family pictures are gone, I did not plan on this ever happening to me so I did not take videos or pictures of my belongs for the insurance company to prove to them that I had a music collection that I have had for over 20 years, or a $10,000 home theater system or 5 computers.

    We decided that yes a Terabyte of space may sound rather extreme to some, others will not think so.

    If you have a free membership with Hriders.com then you will receive a free 1 Terabyte 500 Megabyte attachment email account. You will be able to store over 40 million emails, videos, games, mp3s, or pictures.

  4. Thanks for the infomercial, Jim, but it still doesn’t make a lot of sense for you guys to do it for free. Going with the cheapest drives out there, a terabyte would still cost a lot of money; minimum $500. Add redundancy to keep the data safe (one of your main points) and the connectivity for your users to get to that data, and the price jumps higher. And you’re giving these accounts to anybody just for the asking, out of the goodness of your heart?

    Sorry, but there’s gotta be something in it for you. Or is your company so enormously profitable in other areas that you can be this generous?

  5. Be careful ! I believe this is a trap ! Many of my friends (including myself) created an account there but you CAN’T use that account to send or receive emails. Don’t waste your time, get a one from GMAIL better.

    If you don’t believe, you can go to try it out yourself.

  6. Yes, it really doesn’t work. Every time u press onCHECK MY EMAIL. A window comes up saying

    Proxy Encountered Error
    Connection Timeout: Could not contact the remote server. Possible causes include mistyped URL, transient network problems, overloaded remote server, and misconfigured proxy server.

  7. I’ve tried this email. I could send an email to my yahoo account, but not one with an attachment. Nothing attached.

    I then tried replying to my email and nothing arrived in the Hriders account. I sent several emails – one bounced back saying I had a spam rating of “9”.

    It’s reasonable enough to offer 1 TB accounts with 500 meg attachment capabilities if there’s going to be an email war – and it looks like there is. So Hriders may be poitioning itself to gain a stake. The ads are big – there’s revenue from clicks… maybe good revenue. It’s not necessarily a trick or a trap.

    I emailed their help desk about the attachment problems and received s nonsensical gobbledy-gook programmer’s reply. Face it, you can either attach a file or not attach a file – it’s a simple click click procedure and doesn’t require programming explanations of how I might have transgressed some code. CLICK CLICK… just like everywhere else.

    It doesn’t work at present. Perhaps it will in the future. At the moment it’s a dead loss.
